Anybody have any info on the Mustang 'E' SportsRoofs from 1969? I know it was an economy minded '69 SportsRoof with a 250 six, automatic, and gears of about 2.35. Anybody know how many were ever made of these cars? I was just wondering since every once in a while I see it mentioned in artciles.

Not exactly a big demand option. They made a total of 96 fastbacks. Fast back only. Over the years Mustang Monthly did an article twice and maybe Mustang Times, not sure.

I knew that it was one of the more obscure options, and that production was low, but I didn't know it was that low. Thanks for the help mellowyellow.

If you are looking for info on the Mustang E try the vintage-mustang.com board. There is a guy with the user name ltd600 who has one.
Here is the home site he has http://pages.prodigy.net/d.hughmanick/ltd600.html
This site will answer all the question that you have I believe.

No, that's not the E. It was a regional special for Philly. They made just under 600. The e was a Ford special. The E had a decal on the rear quarter panel Entitled E It is listed in the Mustangs By The Numbers, book by Kevin Marti. The number 96 denoting units produced is from the Ford data base of which Kevin has contractual access.

I just did!! Thanks for the Heads Up! That's an interesting read. What a slug that car must have been. No wonder it didn't do well. Probably would have, a few years later when the first gas crunch hit.

An interesting site!
